The last day to register to vote or change registration information for this primary election is June 1.

“If a voter voted in the primary election, they can only vote in the runoff election for the party they voted for in the primary”, Phillips said.

The third safe Republican open seat is the new 14th District near Pittsburgh, featuring a familiar name to those following recent special elections.

Runoff Election Day will be Tuesday, May 22 from 7 7 p.m.

75 – Candidates for the 24 state Senate seats up for election this year.

The advertising will start on Tuesday – about a week after ballots were sent out to voters – and will target Republican Rocky Chavez, one of the front-runners in the race to succeed Issa. The Democrats have a strong candidate in the Phoenix-area, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.

Lieutenant Governor: There are five Democrats running for the job, including Democratic incumbent Mike Stack. He also stripped Stack of state police protection. Marc Friedenberg and Judy Herschel are competing with one another for the Democratic nomination.

Stack is still seeking re-election, but he’s being challenged by four candidates in the Democratic Primary: Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone; Braddock Mayor John Fetterman; Ray Sosa, a banker from Montgomery County; and Nina Ahmad, a former deputy mayor under Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. The 15th District will also likely be close: After losing to a Republican in 2010, Democratic Sen.

In Bingham County, Committeemen and women in the Republican Party will be selected. “In a million years I didn’t think I would be running for any office”. The son of the late former governor, he’s uncontested in the primary.

Scott Wagner, a York County state senator since 2014, has always been viewed the front runner. That has put a target on his back for Republicans.

Cliff Arthur, an attorney in Lodi, considered running as a Republican, too, but said Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, told him the party muscle would be on Plumer’s side. The victor faces Democratic incumbent Rep. Matt Cartwright.

Democrats are trying to take a major step toward winning control of the House, as voters pick nominees Tuesday in Pennsylvania, one of the ripest states for the party to make gains in November’s midterm elections.

A more interesting contest comes in the northeastern district being vacated by retiring Representative Charlie Dent, one of the few remaining moderate Republicans in the House.

In the Capital Region’s 10th District, four Democratic candidates are vying for the chance to face-off against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Perry in the fall.

The Democratic nomination for governor is up for grabs between Andrew White and Lupe Valdez, as well as the state senate nod, and a handful of county posts.

Pennsylvania State House of Representatives, 110th District – Incumbent Tina Pickett is running unopposed for the sole Republican position, while Donna Iannone is running unopposed for the Democratic nomination for this position. But Republicans acknowledge it will be hard to hold the seat under the new lines. The Republicans are Rick Saccone (who lost to Conor Lamb in the nationally watched special election) and Guy Reschenthaler.
